Q: Can I pearl back a 3rd level spell with a pearl of power 5th?
A: Yes. This is a DM ruling and I can’t find a resource that states otherwise. In the same way you can memorize a 3rd level spell in a 5th level slot. To pearl back that 3rd level spell, however, you would have to use a 5th level pearl.
